Marcus Cicerone Receives 2016 Arthur S. Flemming Award

Marc Cicerone headshot

Dr. Marcus Cicerone was recently recognized for outstanding federal service through seminal contributions to the field of label-free chemical imaging, by introducing broadband coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (BCARS) microscopy, and to the field of biological therapeutics by introducing the practice of using nanosecond and picosecond dynamics to rapidly and accurately predict long term stability of freeze-dried therapeutic proteins. Cicerone has followed these landmark accomplishments with simplifying adaptations that allow the associated technologies to be used in practical applications; BCARS for label-free chemical mapping of diseased tissues with unprecedented speed, and a bench-top fluorescence method for rapidly evaluating freeze-dried formulations.
